Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Remake Release the First Gameplay
Experience a thrilling Lovecraftian adventure, rebuilt from the ground up with modern graphics and gameplay. Become Sherlock Holmes and find yourself at the heart of the terrifying Cthulhu Mythos as you investigate a series of mysterious disappearances across Europe and the United States.
A Lovecraft meets Sherlock Holmes crossover, The Awakened puts you up against the legendary Cthulhu Mythos. Investigate a series of mysterious disappearances, which seem to be linked to a dark cult that worships the Ancient God. Whatever their plan is, you must stop them… or face unspeakable consequences.
For the first time in his life, Sherlock was truly afraid. A rational and reasonable man, he faces an otherworldly entity that defies all logic, and this discovery is as enlightening as it is devastating. The pursuit of the truth drives Sherlock to the brink of madness, and this is the one story that Watson will never publish.
Set in 1884, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened unveils how Sherlock and John, who were just roommates at the time, became a world-famous crime-solving duo.
Some key features:
- Delve into the Myth of Cthulhu as imagined by H.P. Lovecraft and face Eldritch horrors beyond human comprehension.
- Fight the pervasive madness as you pursue answers to questions that don’t have any rational explanation.
- Discover clues that will lead you through London’s infamous Baker Street, Switzerland’s haunting psych ward, Louisiana’s treacherous wetlands and more.
- A reimagining of the 2008 title: Rebuilt from the ground up in Unreal Engine, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened offers modern graphics and animations, an expanded storyline, numerous side missions, and new mechanics including unique gameplay madness.
